New Field Hockey Program Blanks Hofstra 3-0 In Season Opener
Hempstead, NY – The newly-reinstated Wagner College field hockey team traveled to Hempstead, NY and blanked Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) member, Hofstra, 3-0, on Friday afternoon at the Hofstra Field Hockey Stadium in the 2019 season opener. The Green & White, who were outshot in the match, 14-11, went ahead 1-0 on freshman Kira Mordvinov first career goal as Mordvinov rebounded the deflected shot by teammate Gabrielle Dudek just five minutes into the first quarter.
Wagner upped its lead to 2-0 with 2:44 remaining in the third period as once again Mordvinov was the beneficiary and recorded her second score of the afternoon. The first-year forward picked up the loose ball and registered her second tally of the contest, getting one past Hofstra keeper, Cecelia DeSimone.
